My daughter had a Winnie the Pooh themed party for her 2nd birthday. I wanted to try a cupcake cake, and the Pooh Hunny Pot Cupcake Birthday Cake idea came to me.
I baked around 3 batches of cupcakes, each batch a different flavor. (This gave the guests a variety from which to choose.)
After playing around with the shape a little bit, I arranged the cupcakes into the shape of a honey pot onto a very large piece of heavy cardboard.
I then covered almost the entire honey pot with vanilla icing. I used chocolate icing on the very top cupcake, to represent the knob on the top of the lid. I iced one row of cupcakes with chocolate icing to represent the lip of the lid. I then used a squeezable chocolate icing to write the word “HUNNY” on it, as I found in one of my daughter’s Pooh books.
